Mrs H is still learning ever increasing number of tunes on her fiddle.

Even though she can sort've read sheet music, she prefers to be able to hear the tune as well to get the feel of it.

We've been looking for a soundbite for the barndance/morris tune 'Gallopede'.

Anyone point me to a site where we could hear it?

Thanks in advance.

Mr H

G'day Mr Happy,

Well ... that depends on whether you actually want a source for the Galopede tune ... for the Galopede (stepping) dance.

I think that the 'home' tune for the Galopede, as we play it in Australia, is basically the same as that used in UK (and found in the EFDSS Community Dance Manual - ?) ... although we learned our version from an old local player, Herb Gimbert.

Ours is a 32 bar (AABB) 3/4 tune in G ... played along with tunes I think of as 2/4 'marches'.

Regards,

Bob

Thanks for link but

Well, thanks to johnadams for the link. All I did was go there and look. JC's indexes a vast number of tune collections on the web and is THE place to look for diddly.

I'd like to track down a recording of Herb Gimbert playing his Galopede tune, and I'm hoping Bob Bolton might give me some pointers (if he's listening out there).

Bob Ellis mentioned Herb's version over lunch last weekend, but I was paying more attention to the food and forgot to follow it up with him. And I don't have his email address anyway.

Hope Bob and/or others can help me with this.
cheers, Ian

Quite a few versions on Youtube Mr. H.

That's always my first port of call when trying to find a tune, and then FolkTuneFinder for the dots.

I've recently come across an Australian Galopede tune for a dance of the same name and it's NOT the one we all know in England, nor one I recognise by any other title.

Take a look at This Thread on melodeon.net where Galopede is currently tune of the month, and you'll find ABC and links to several performances of both tunes.

I have played this tune for a few years and it goes by the name of "Yarmouth Reel".
